I had to make Sympathy cards a while back, I prefer to make Thinking of you cards and I also want to make them as personal as I can so they are never made ahead, which means I need an easy design. I have a couple of sets that work well, Thoughts and Prayers from Stampin'up is my favourite.  A couple of my friends didn't get to see my card and I said I would blog it when I had time.  So here is my Sympathy card.

I layered white on white with the one layer embossed with a cherry blossom embossing folder from the Cuttlebug Asian collection. I decided to make this very simple in black and white. If you don't have a butterfly die a simple bow would look nice on the stem.

I carried the simple design from the front to the inside.

Thanks for visiting today come back again soon, you are always welcome.

Sympathy cards are definitely the hardest, especially when you are thinking of the loss while you create them. This is soft & beautiful - and the little gems are perfect!
